Cumbernauld company CMS Window Systems has won plaudits for its green credentials at a major environmental awards.

The window installation specialist was named a winner at the Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) Awards.

It took home the Management (SME) Award, sponsored by Stirling University Management School, at the ceremony held in Edinburgh’s Sheraton Hotel.

The VIBES Awards is Scotland’s leading environmental awards scheme, recognising businesses that take significant steps to improve or reduce their impact on the environment.

Following a record number of entries, 27 Scottish businesses were shortlisted for the 2015 awards.

A rigorous judging process included a programme of site visits, to assess the environmental practices of each of the finalists.

Martin McCrimmon, director of IT and business systems at CMS Window Systems, said: “It is a great honour to win the VIBES Management award. Since our inception in 2006, we knew we could do things differently and better in a way that would benefit all stakeholders – our customers, our employees and the local communities in which we operate, whilst having minimal negative impact on the environment.

Gillian Bruce, chair of the awards said: “We have had a great day celebrating their achievements and hope many more companies will be inspired to follow their example by recognising the benefits of sustainability in business.”
